“…that a band can remain so tightly coiled and sharply focused after so many years at the watchtower is a commendable thing indeed.” — Kerrang

“…this album is proof that Killing Joke is a force of nature, not just a band. They can do anything, be anything, move into any place they want and always stay ahead of the curve. Call off the dogs everybody; the best album of 2010 is here.” — Crave

“Singer Jaz Coleman still sounds like Lemmy’s bonkers nephew and guitarist Geordie Walker still peels paint off number 10 Downing Street at will. It’s not 1980 anymore, but the lethal jokes remain.” — Spin

“The (post-)punk ethos is there, but this is heavy, intelligent rock, aggressive and insistent sometimes, but tempered by several laidback, reflective moments. And, in a way, it sounds like these four guys were never apart.” — Exclaim

“Coleman screaming, Walker finding new ways to get a tuneful drone out of a distorted instrument, and the ever-rotating rhythm section finding a way to keep it all from collapsing comprise a machine that just keeps humming.” — Pop Matters
